The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) is the world’s premier archive of Australian audiovisual and emerging media cultural heritage. We are a national cultural institution funded by the Australian Government.

Our aim is to enrich Australia’s cultural identity by developing, preserving, promoting and interpreting a national audiovisual collection comprised of recorded historic and contemporary sound, moving image, documentation and new media. The key to achieving our mission is to then make this collection and Australia’s audiovisual heritage available to everyone.
